Conor McGregor may be the biggest name in all of mixed martial arts. Heck, he is even one of the biggest names in the entire world of sports. But that hasn’t made him a favorite… at least, not according to oddsmakers.
It’s not surprising that Khabib Nurmagomedov is still the favored fighter to win their UFC 229 main event bout, considering he was already the favorite according to most bookies when the bout was announced.
The gap has narrowed slightly, however. When the UFC 229 headliner was announced, most oddsmakers had Nurmagomedov as -180 to -200 favorite with McGregor clocking in around +150 to +160.
Following last week’s UFC 229 Press Confernece in New York, Nurmagomedov is still favored, but his advantage has edged down to -155, according to Bovada.lv. McGregor, meanwhile, is set at +125.
Below or Bovada’s odds not only for the win, but also for several other prop bets, like what round, method victory, etcetera.
